Colorado Ballet presents ballet Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project

Sanya Andersen-Vie - February 19, 2013

DENVER – Colorado Ballet will present Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project March 29 through March 31 at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Denver.

Light is set to the music of five contemporary composers including Philip Glass and Arvo Part.  This one act contemporary ballet in five movements is inspired by the journey of one Holocaust survivor.  Colorado Ballet will also include talkbacks after each performance of Light.

Light exhibits a moving combination of artistry and human rights advocacy,” said Gil Boggs, Colorado Ballet Artistic Director. “The production is a powerful and emotional experience showcasing the triumph of the human spirit.”

When it premiered in 2005, Light brought national attention to choreographer Stephen Mills.  His original choreography turns the spotlight on discrimination.

“We are honored to bring Light to Denver audiences,” Boggs said. “This is a work that touches the soul.”
